Research Fellow Thomas Cargill, author of the article "Eugenics in High School History: Failure to Confront the Past" in the Summer 2020 issue of The Independent Review is interviewed on The Federalist Radio Hour. Cargill discusses the history of the Progressivism and their policies of eugenics in the early 20th century. The widespread acceptance of eugenics in the United States, especially by progressives, is a troubling part of U.S. history unknown to many Americans, and the role model America provided for Nazi race law is even more troubling.
